Based on this, an effort was made by Okparan-uku to convey another meeting with the community members which took place on Thursday, July 2, 2020 at the same Hall where passionate appeals were made by the entire members of the community to the State Government to come and tar their roads.
In the said publication, it was also wrongly reported that Owa-Alizomor Community Health facility was facilitated by Hon Tony Emeka Elekeokwuri, member representing Ika North East constituency,
It was also revealed at the meeting that the Owa-Alizomor community Health facility was built by the Delta State Government under the leadership of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa and not facilitated by Hon. Elekeokuri as reported. The Health facility building project was awarded to Hon. Princewill Onuodafin, SA to the Governor on Youth Development and Mrs. MaryJane Usuegbu.
The community also used the medium to appeal to the State Government to kindly remember to help re-build the block of nine classrooms at Owa-Alizomor Secondary school which was razed down by fire some time ago.
